Sounds like they are having some issues drilling this well, but can anyone interpret what this means?
DRLD TO 17262'; DRILL STRING TWISTED OFF ABOVE BHA; KILLED WELL; TIH W/ FISHING TOOLS TO TOF @ 14926'; LATCH ON TO FISH, POOH & L/D PARTIAL FISH; TSTD BOP'S 12/9/11; TRIP IN & OUT HOLE W/ IMPRESSION BLOCK; TIH W/ BHA TO 2700', INSTALLED ROTATING HEAD; TIH TO 15008' & TAGGED UP; STAGE OUT OF HOLE TO 6500' & ESTABLISH CIRCULATION; CBU;
I have been told that they have decided to pull the plug on this one. Got this info late Friday afternoon
The final decision hasn't been made yet Frankie but it's looking that way. Or hadn't as of yesterday. They couldn't make the turn. If you see them tearing down the rig today then we'll know for sure.
I reckon the size of the setback depends on what direction you're looking at it from. From where I sit it bites! Ha!
I'm still waiting on Pryme. I still have a few brown hairs left that'll turn grey while I'm waiting! ;-)
It'll be interesting to see which direction Atinum goes if they shut this one down. I had heard that Anadarko was done until next year but I don't know how reliable that intel is.
Next year.... as in ten days away?
Two more shopping days 'til Christmas! :-o
Still haven't heard a decision yet Frankie but they have been flaring gas for two weeks now. They hit oil and pressure bigtime so it's still not clear what they will do. They even lost the fish. If they can clear the booger they could possibly produce it as a vertical with what they've hit. Or plug it, move over and start all over. Who knows? They are in a serious play out there though. Nightmare drill that one has been.

They are moving over 40' and starting again. They are in a serious play out there but couldn't handle the pressure. Atinum tried like the dickens to clear the hole and produce it as a vertical but lost the fish to boot. It'll be interesting to watch the new drill.
Watt - what's your source? Do have someone on the ground there? This might actually translate into good news for the whole area.
